I am planning (still in planning phase since last 1 month :( ) to use bicycle as my commute to and from office.
My office is around 18 km away from my home. Almost half the road will be full of traffic. Everyone in my family has already told me that 36 km per day will be too much and I wont be able to continue cycling for long time.
I am aware that initially it will be tough to go 36 km per day but I think after month or so my body will get used to it.
So I am wondering how much km do other people go per day? What are your experiences about cycling? and 36 km per day is too much distance?
Update : Finally I bought one cycle against everyone's suggestion (family members and friends) and started cycling to the office. I must say it is a tough job to start cycling after 10 years but I am enjoying it. It takes me almost the same time to reach office. On my motorcycle I used reach office in 40 minutes and on cycle it takes me around 50 minutes. Dust, pollution and other people yanking horns from behind is the biggest headache for me now. I hope that I will get used to it :)
Thanks everyone for your encouragement, suggestions and answers.
